's all somehow inevitable and that the only way for america to get ahead is for places like elkhart to be left behind. you hear that argument sometime in washington. but i know and you know that the truth is exactly the opposite. i'm here because i believe our ability to recover and to prosper as a nation depends on what happens in communities just like this one. the battle for america's future will be fought and won in places like elkhart and detroit and goshen and pittsburgh, south bend, youngstown, in cities and towns across indiana and across the midwest and across the country that have been the backbone of america. it will be won by making places like elkhart what they once were and can be again, and that is centers of innovation and entrepreneurship and ingenuity and opportunity. the whirring engines of america. we can't afford to run the race at half strength or half speed. if we hope to lead this century like we did the last century, we have to create the conditions and opportunities for places like elkhart to succeed. we have to harness the potential, the innovative and cr
in america" truly applied to judge sotomayor and i can say that with a special understanding. humble beginnings were the touch stones that enabled each of us to achieve beyond any parents' dream. i grew up in patterson, new jersey, hard scrabble mill town and our family lacked resources but left inheritance of valuabls with no valuables. my parents sought an opportunity in this country to be free and make a living. we were obligated, if we had the opportunity, to make sure we gave something back to the community in which we lived. judge sotomayor's family moved here if puerto rico and she grew up in a housing project where she saw upfront and close the struggles of people living in poor areas. like my father, judge sotomayor's dad died at a very young age and her mother, like mind, became a widow at a very young age. and she became a single mother, like mind. judge sotomayor's mother had to raise her and her brother in the face of available, social, and financial adversity. in fact, her mother worked two jobs to supports her children and despite the many difficulties, judge sotomayor
for them to deny all of those other folks across america. i will tell you, there will be a backlash against this. people will look at this and say that if this is what they have to do to stop health care, their argument must be weak. go up to the microphone and make your argument. neil: i do not know where your rage was in 2007, when condoleezza rice was heckled. that became a big scene with the blood of millions. then it was a proper use of protest. what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, right? >> if they want to go to a hearing on health care on the hill, want to disrupt that -- they need to realize that they will be arrested like these folks, that is okay. do not disrupt other americans opportunities to be heard. neil: free speech is free speech, right? in april of 2003, hillary clinton was criticizing the lack of free speech issue. >> i am sick and tired of people that say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you are not patriotic. we should stand up and say that we are americans and we have a right to debate and to disagree with any admin
need health care in america. one of the people who really got the people have asked me, what was it like? i tell people that barack obama, the most thing that i will say is driving him is that he watched his white mother died because of inefficiency in health care in america. i think that is the number one driving force, that he does not want to see that happen to americans, white and black, across the board. and he is going to fight with everything he has got because he watched it. he does not have his mother anymore, he does not have his father anymore, and i think he wants people like me who get laid off, 10,000 of us, and know that we need health care in america. thank god for people like sharon brower, the senator who is working hard -- like sherrod brown, the senator who is working hard on behalf of the american people. i worked 45 years of my life and got laid off. people have no idea what it is like to be laid off in america if you have never been laid off. we need this, and i thank god for barack obama, sherrod brown, in the people who are fighting for our rights to

passionate and sometimes even violent, large swaths of white middle class america became very frightened that their normal expectations of law and order were being upended. and richard nixon kind of harvested that rage and he took political advantage of that rage and not only did he harvest it but he also exacerbated it as a political strategy. >> how? >> well, for example, he argued privately, although some of his aids said it publicly, that they wanted to achieve a strategy of positive polarization. in other words, it's good to have a political discourse that divides the country into two powerful their belief that the republicans would harvest the bigger side of the divide. so in other words, even though in much of his public rhetoric he would, you know, speak the words of unity that we expect our presidents to speak all the time, barely beneath the surface he encouraged the idea that one group of americans would believe another group of americans weren't quite american at all. one was the hippies and kids who want to tear down everything all us hard-working americans had built. >> was

[laughter] .. how is chris werner going to get out there and heather macdonald? we have so many fantastic writers in new york, some and fantastic right wing writers and you are buying your head against the wall just to get attention for a book in even a best-selling book, even your seventh best-selling book when it's that hard for me to get on tv what does that say about the conservatives people love norma? >> host: others have said you try to be funny and he called a sophomoric sort of simplistic view of
should not forget senator kennedy's liberal vision for america never became a reality. during his lifetime, he was on the losing side of almost every major issue. from nuclear disarmament, to welfare, reform, for amnesty to illegal aliens. and today the impassioned opposition to obama care at these town hall events is yet another public repudiation of senator kennedy's political vision. so, if democrats think that calling nationalized health care the ed ward kennedy memorial health care act is going to safe it? history teaches us another lesson. shut democrats proceed down this membershippive path, the next big memorial will be for the democratic majority in congress. and that's the memo. now on to our top story. a different take on this. joining us from new york, democratic strategist tara dowel and conservative columnist andrea tantaros. this is a tough subject because the country is remembering the contributions of senator kennedy whether you are republican or democrat, you honor the man's memory and what he tried to do with people. whether you disagree with him or agree with h
, it is like this. america says that they're willing to take care of people who need a leg up. when you tell them that they will help people who are not here legally, you will say, what is that? don't help the screwups. if you are not here legally, none of this applies to you. that is the anchor. -- anger. bill: nancy pelosi does not help barack obama. he is having some issues out in california. what is that? >> well, from calling our cia liars to calling the people of latin america, to infering they are nazis, she always has the ugliest face on things. she will have a meeting in her winery over the weekend to raise money. i will tell you something about a guided tour from nancy pelosi, it will be difficult to tell the prunes from the grapes. some where she will come across lucy ricardo and stars stomping on first amendment rights. if people want to show up and whine for nancy pelosi to call them nazis, , that is not good. bill: she has a beautiful house. 170 guest will gather on the back lawn. have you been invited? >> i would not even go near her. there are people in my life that i disagre
, but more for an america that they had left at home and also for a changing america, one that the ford motor company, their employers, their employer, was largely responsible with dispatching. there's something about the amazon when one reads the chronicles of the amazon. the amazon almost induces people to wax philosophically or existentially in a very florid allegory about the enormous nature of the amazon, how it seduces man to impose his will and only to render that will implement. think of verna heard sog's interview in burden of dreams, just the way that people talk about the amazon as this place and the of moral meaning and very florid. there is something about though the men and women that ford sent down, most of them from michigan, a lot of them also from the upper peninsula down to the amazon. they were almost immune or inoculated. they had a certain midwestern stubborn little less that refused to see the amazon in those six essential terms. was actually relief reading about it, but then they would wax nostalgic but again certain nostalgia for receiving in a lost united states. it
by physicians. it is the heart of the american practice of medicine. the most famous hospitals in america. either started out or still are physician-owned. like the mayo clinic, john hopkins in baltimore. in my state, md anderson. not every state allows physicians to have an interest, an equity/ownership interest in hospitals. in those states that do they have the highest quality rating, patient satisfaction ratings. i am blessed in my congressional district to have a number of physician-owned hospitals. i have been treated in the hospitals. i have gone to the emergency rooms in the hospitals. my mother has been in one of these. without exception. the experience has been as good as it can be given the situation that resulted in it. the pending bill for some reason is punitive. on these types of facilities. would at a minimum prevent their expansion. in all probability cause a number of them to close. if you read the language that my amendment strikes it is punitive and nature and very restrictive. some limited exceptions where you can appeal to the secretary of hhs. if we're going to have
